Golden State Warriors: Rookies Come Up Big

+Read full article

While it’s Stephen Curry’s name who will be lit up in the media Tuesday morning, and rightfully so, the Golden State Warriors tremendous overtime win over the Dallas Maverick wouldn’t have been possible without the outstanding play of it’s three rookies.

Harrison Barnes, who is undeniably asserting himself in the conversation for this year’s Rookie of the Year award, finished the contest as the games third highest scorer with 20 points. While 8 for 16 from the field is outstanding any night, it was his 4 of 6 from downtown and his staggering 12 rebounds where he truly left his mark.

Barnes is now averaging 15.2 points and 8 rebounds on 50% shooting over his last five contests. Those totals would currently rank him 3rd among rookies in scoring, 2nd in rebounding and 6th in field goal percentage.

Festus Ezeli once again managed to asset himself on the paint in limited minutes. He ripped down a game-high 7 offensive rebounds, the most for any rookie this season, and converted on all four of his field goal attempts for 9 points.

The Warriors rebounding total was actually their highest since 2005, as they dominated the Mavs on the glass 62-43.

Lastly, Draymond Green, who had just scored a career-high 9 points in a loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder the night before, managed to match it in the win. And while he also notched 7 rebounds on the night, perhaps his most impressive contribution was his team-high three steals.

The Warriors and it’s rooks will now look to build on their remarkable performance against the Brooklyn Nets on Nov. 21st.
